Project Review

An elderly home in Chiang Mai is providing care, attention, and shelter to more than 100 helpless and needy senior citizens who are above the age of 60. These elderly people need help and often have various needs, necessitating constant care which involves both mental and physical support from others. This home severely needs more helping hands to keep a constant eye on these needy people. If you have a love and compassion for the old and want to make a meaningful contribution by making their life worth living, then this project needs the helping hands of volunteers like you.

Major Responsibilities

Volunteers working in the elderly home will take care of old people. Participants will also help in the kitchen (preparing, cooking, and serving) where there will also be opportunities to entertain the elderly people by singing, creating fun games, etc. If volunteers possess the necessary skills, they can administer physiotherapy to the needy elderly men and women. Volunteers are also expected to assist in various administrative tasks.

Arrangements for Room/Food

IFRE arranges room, food, and supervision for volunteer for the entire duration of the program. During the first week's program of language and cultural immersion, volunteers will stay in IFRE's hostel and/or with a host family. IFRE's hostel in Bangkok is located in the outskirts of the city, granting easy access to all parts of Bangkok . During the language program, volunteers eat out in different restaurants. Our local staff members supply volunteers a coupon or make dining arrangements directly with restaurants. IFRE does not offer expensive meals, but offer local food three (3) times a day.

During the assigned-work period, volunteers stay in a hostel or with host families. IFRE manages a separate room along with a shared bath for volunteers both in host families and hostel. In host families, volunteers' "host moms" cook food. But for volunteers living in the hostel, our local staff members arrange food in local restaurants or provide a coupon. The details pertaining to room/food will be furnished in volunteers' final placement details prior to departure to Thailand.
